Unbought and Unbossed: Canadian Political News and Views
Show #79 July 23, 2008
Unbought and Unbossed is an independent voice dedicated to presenting and discussing issues of great social and political importance. In our present post-9/11 Canada, it is more vital than ever to critically examine our collective understanding of contemporary politics and the direction our elected servants are taking us. I strongly encourage listeners to question what you think you know about todays world events, and to analyse the motives behind our corporate media.
It is time to wake up and to educate, to learn to work together,
and to find the courage to act on our love for one another.
Our every freedom is at stake in this battle for truth and accountability,
the prize is nothing less than the health of our collective human soul.
This episode is 1 hour and 48 minutes.
This weekâs show features a telephone interview with Splitting the Sky, AKA John Bancore. (Interview starts at 21 minutes). Splitting the Sky is an activist for indigenous peoples as well as a vocal 9/11 Truther. Topics discussed include: his experience at the Attica prison rebellion in New York state in 1971; following the 9/11 money trail; PNAC and The Grand Chessboard; coincidental theorist vs. conspiracy theorist; and his experience as a political dissenter moving into the film and television industry.
I also read from an article by Mike Finch called the CDN Internet Service Providers Plan Net Censorship: Concerns grow that Canadaâs plan will wipeout alternative news sites and spread to U.S. This was published this week.
As well, an Update on the Vancouver cameraman, Michael Barcellona, who was arrested by Vancouver Police on June 12 2008, for filming the protest against former U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell at the Van Convention Ctr. This update comes from Travis Lupick, from We Are Change Vancouver.
